"With a couple of players becoming unavailable in 2015 and the 2nd XI moving up a division this year, we saw it as a neccesity to add to our squad if we were going to reach our goals. Given that our targets are always high, this meant some significant work would be required in the winter, but along with our various captains are I'm absolutely delighted with the players we've signed. It's fantastic to have players approaching us, wanting to be part of what we're creating at the club, striving to better themselves and be part of something that continues to grow season by season."
